Powering the Next Generation Trades Worker

Mar 12, 2023

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Today, more than 1 in 5 trades workers are older than 55 and nearly 50% of all trades workers with 10 or more years of experience will retire by 2030 – our workforce of tradespeople is disappearing and there isn’t a generation training to replace them. 

Hear from founder and CEO of Forge, Mark Kasdorf, as he shares Forge’s mission to build and power the next-generation trades worker by providing tradespeople with skills, training, technology, and real jobs to solve one of the largest — and least discussed — challenges facing the nation today.
